EGD biopsy says I have it. One thing I forgot to ask my doctor is how can they guarantee it’s gone after the 2 weeks of antibiotics? Anyone else have to go through the treatment for this?

I had it. After the 2 weeks on the prescribed medication i had to wait another 2-3 weeks and then submit stool.The test came back negative.

Interesting. Well, I just got back word that all I have to do is take the meds and there's no further testing afterward. Thank goodness...not sure I'd be able to mentally handle having to do a stool sample LOL

LOL. It was my first time ever. Glad you don't have to do it. The instructions were so specific. I thought I was going to do it wrong.

Even crappier news than having to do a stool sample...my stupid insurance doesn't cover the PrevPac!!! So now they're trying to figure out what to do...ugh...everything was going so great until now.

Has nothing to do with that. The PrevPac he called in was generic. What the deal is...#1) My insurance is stupid...#2) One of the meds in the pack is not covered (the Lansoprazole)…the other 2 are covered (Clarithromycin and Amoxicillin). So when sold in a pack, they deny the entire thing. What we have to do is call in 3 separate Rx's as generic and I have to pay out of pocket for the Lanso. Insurance will pay for the other 2...this nearly gave me a heart attack LOL

For the last 6 months my mom's Dr has been trying to get rid of hers and everytime she gets tested to see if it's gone she still has it. Then today I found out I have it also but I'm hoping mine doesn't last as long.

I hope you have better luck!

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me inΒ a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told herΒ i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you?Β or is it just me) Β 
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
